Great boutique hotel. Wonderful area. Lots of dining and entertainment choices just a couple blocks away. Friendly, helpful staff. We stayed here for 5 nights while exploring San Diego and will stay here again if we ever go back!
And the BIG bonus - a Keurig coffee maker in the room!

Room Tip: We don't have any pets, but this is a dog friendly hotel and the floors in the rooms are hardwoo...

If you ever travel with a pooch, this place is a great option. There's no additional charge and there's an option to walk the dog on a walkway on the 9th floor. The location is really close to Petco so I'd imagine it's great for games. Good jumping off points to other spots in Gas Lamp. As other people said, the parking is $38 so if you come on a Saturday/Sunday, look for some street parking (no tickets after 6PM or on Sundays). We wanted to watch some NFL Playoffs and when the TV was broken in our room, they switched us to another room no problem. We ordered room service too, if you're doing Lunch, make sure L is by the item, the burgers were fine. I would definitely consider staying here again and I'd recommend you check them out.

Room Tip: Think about parking alternatives if you come on a weekend (private lots abound) or be prepared to pa...

Avi G,

Thank you for stopping by and writing down a few comments about our Hotel Indigo. It has its perks being located just outside the Gaslamp District along with two blocks from the stadium and I am happy to hear our location was convenient for you while in the Downtown San Diego area. I apologize the parking was an inconvenience for you along with the broken television set. At the Hotel Indigo, we strive for guest satisfaction and I thank you for giving us the opportunity to switch you to a new room in order for you to watch the big game.

We cannot wait to see you again while visiting San Diego.

I stayed at the hotel May 23rd-28th and it was a wonderful stay. Jose at the front desk was very professional, courteous, and attractive. The property itself was beautiful, the music that played in the lobby was well-chosen. Oh and the bed was very comfortable, I usually can't sleep well on hotel mattresses but these ones were very comfortable.

Hotel Indigo is conveniently located right on gas lamp quarter and seemed to be a new hotel. Very boutique sexy hotel with great view of downtown SD on the 9th floor! I'll be back to this wonderful hotel next time visiting SD!

My husband and I stayed in the hotel for 4 nights over memorial day weekend. The stay was fine, but a few things caught our attention. I had read a previous reviewers mention about a noisy area. This is true. It is in a great location for exploring gaslamp district, embarcadero, seaport village, PETCO park and accessing the ferry to Coranado. You're also in an easy place to get on the highway. The downside of this location is that it on the weekends it was very noisy when the bars let out. Within the hotel, the doors, when they close, are extremely loud. Another point of bother was that the key cards to access your room and your floor on the elevator were overly sensitive to the point where you would have to try 5 or 6 times to get it to work, sometimes missing your floor entirely. And it wasn't just us, everyone in the hotel had the same issue. It made for interesting elevator rides. Be sure to get down to the valet area a few minutes before you need to leave. It took about 5 minutes or so to get our car each time. Rooms were clean, service was friendly, great location. Not a horrible stay by any means, but not the perfect stay. We'll try somewhere else when we go back.

Room Tip: Choose a high floor so you have better likelihood of not hearing the bars pour out at 2pm.

We stayed here on an overnight trip to catch a ball game at Petco Park. We asked for a room that overlooked the park and we were not let down. The rooms are reasonably sized and decorated nicely. The lobby bar is nice but the rooftop bar is awesome. This hotel is located near several other watering holes and is within easy walking distance into Petco.
